we saw some of the most beautiful, clean rest stops.
this one happened to be in Minnesota almost into Iowa
we saw lots of facial hair and trucker hats
(this was Whole Foods, West Des Moines)
Lauren had the perfect road trip spot...
Slurpee, snacks and an iTouch
Iowa is very, very flat
even in middle America, we found traces of home
Whattt???? never did figure this one out
Traci and I were so impressed with the renovations that
were going on in the large downtown areas
beautiful hand-made Minnesota wood bowl
we saw lots and lots of trucks and truck stops
and lots of red barns and silos
there seems to be a real trend toward co-op markets back there
Nice Ride Bikes.
We saw these all over Minneapolis, St. Paul and Des Moines.
Traci said they have them in New York also.
For a small fee, you rent a bike and ride between the rental stands. Really a good idea.
We saw so many people riding bikes
Minnesota has some really big, old cemeteries.
This one was Lakeshore and it was huge
we kept track of how many different car license plates we saw.
We saw over half of the US in just four days!
All-in-all a really great trip!
